Robbe Ceurens (BEL)

“Hot day out in Bulgaria today. There was a 5k false flat section in the parcours and 1 small hill. The first 35km were really fast but once the breakaway was gone the race got more controlled. We caught the breakaway with 40km to go and prepared for a bunch sprint. I was in the right position for a top-10 result and crossed the line in 8th place!” 

Daniel Holt (USA)

After yesterday’s hard day, we didn’t want to put too much pressure on the guys to take the race to other teams. We just reminded them to not make the same mistakes as yesterday, especially when it came to fueling. At the end they should do their best to help Robbe position for the sprint.
